We at Castle Rock Research very much value our strong relationship with Harry Ainlay High School and the extended parent community. For the new school year, we appreciate having the opportunity to work with school administration to improve the ordering and delivery process for our resources. As such, we have implemented a new procedure for orders from Harry Ainlay families. Orders may now be placed online at

Castle Rock Research provides educational discounts for school purchases (retail price is $29.95) and will ensure that parents ordering online will get the preferred school pricing. Please note that the portal will be available until June 30th, 2017 so orders may be placed at any time prior to this closing date. Castle Rock Research will individually package, aggregate, and deliver orders to the specified home address on the on-line order form.

The following resources are being provided for purchase:

The KEY Study Guides - Mathematics, English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies courses across grades 3 to 12. These guides are ideal for review and assessment preparation and feature questions from past Diploma exams and Provincial Achievement Tests, where applicable. The correct answers and detailed solutions for questions are also provided.

Student Notes and Problems (SNAP) Workbooks – Instructional content, practice exercises, and unit assessments covering the breadth and depth of select Science and Mathematics courses.

Problem Solved – All of the questions from the respective SNAP books are presented along with the detailed solutions.

Class Notes – An excerpt of each SNAP workbook that focuses students on the explanatory notes for each topic.

SOLARO – A digital resource that is web or mobile (iOS, Android, and Windows) enabled and 100% aligned to the curriculum outcomes for each course. Students get unlimited access to robust online content for all of the courses offered in print, with content that spans the SNAP workbooks and the year-end assessments found in The KEY Study Guides. SOLARO is also offered for 20 other courses that are only available digitally.

As always, we thank you for your support, The Castle Rock Research Team.
